    At what rate are you expecting coral growth?

    I am not really sure how to quantify that. What I can say is that during periods of stable alkalinity I have noticeably faster coral growth and must frag more often. That goes for acros, to chalices to euphyllia. Do I have scientific measurements of that? No, but I have a very good feel of their growth rates.

    I think CSEA is still looking for an April meeting topic. You should have everyone over to give a detailed look at your tank and the new toy.

    Alkatronic Update: I have been adjusting my hourly dosing based on the test results.

    On the Alkatronic graph red dots indicate where the unit tested ALK below the low tolerance target, in this case I have set that at 8.5dkh. The red dots then dose alk to bring it up to 8.5. White dots indicate where the test falls within my target range and the Alkatronic takes no further action. The blue dots indicate Alk above the target range, in this case, using an included bluetooth outlet, the Alkatronic will shut off the outlet, thus turning off a dosing pump unitl the next test that is back in the target range.

    So, based on the previous test results I adjusted my hourly dosing and have resulted in 2 days of white dots (Alk within my target range). I actually want to lower my dosing a bit so that once or twice a day I get a red dot where the Alkatronic will dose a bit. That way the Alk doesnt creep up too much over the course of several days.

    Here is my test results graph

    And here is my current hourly dosing graph. Much higher Alk demand with the lights on.

    Took some cellphone pictures. They look decent on a cellphone, not so much on a PC. Gives me motivation to get the Nikon out soon. In any event, since I got them, might as well post them.

    I got the good camera out and took a bunch of shots. Inspired by @bubbaque I am going to post one or two pictures at a time, every day or two.

    First up. Cherry Corals Meltdown Favia (I think I have the name right) I bought this a few years ago and have only recently been able to get it back to the original color.
